At the 2004 Deutsche Bank Championship, Vijay Singh shot a final round 69 to win and overtake Tiger Woods as the No. 1 player in the world. Six years later, it’s the same tournament and same player atop the rankings, but two different guys are in position to dethrone Tiger, who has held the spot for 273 weeks.
This marks the 11th start that Phil Mickelson has had the opportunity to take over as No. 1 for the first time in his career.
